And the latest stupidity by the Journal....yesterday's Poughkeepsie Journal, 1/5/13, Mid-Hudson section, pg 2....seems someone sent a 2nd envelope to the White Plains office of the Journal. Both contained an unknow white powder, thought last week's powder was baking soda. So, following protocol, the employee who felt something strange in the envelope, put it in 2 plastic envelopes & took it "off premises" (city street???). She managed to tear off a corner of the envelope while it was still in the plastic bags, then seeing the white powder drove to a MUNICIPAL garage (more potential danger to public) and then called the police!!!
Are you kidding me??? That's your protocol?? Possibly endanger the general public? Oh, yeah, safety of your employess is the priority. Wouldn't it have been a better idea to just isolate the floor & then call the police/FD for haz-mat response??? I know they care about "the right of the public to know," but potentially expose them too??? I'm sure it was a stupid hoax by the sender, but the response by the Journal was assinine again!!
